Talk about activist chic.

Katy Perry didn't shy away from making a political statement during her performance at Sunday's Grammy Awards.

The singer, styled by Jamie Mizrahi, hit the stage in a Tom Ford pantsuit (Hillary Clinton's go-to silhouette) that featured the Planned Parenthood logo on the lapel. The look was paired with a bedazzled "Persist" armband, which no doubt referenced Elizabeth Warren's tweet, in which the Massachusetts senator wrote, "Consider this MY warning: We won’t be silent. We will speak out. And we WILL persist."

The tweet came shortly after Warren was silenced by Mitch McConnell for trying to read Coretta Scott King's letter about opposing Jeff Sessions' nomination in 1986 on the Senate floor.

Perry performed her new single "Chained to the Rhythm," with Bob Marley's grandson Skip Marley, while hidden behind a fence. The setup was a statement against Donald Trump's immigration ban and his threat to build a wall.

The performance ended with Perry shouting "No hate!" while the U.S. Constitution was projected behind her.
